Frances Hatch working near Swanage

Frances Hatch studied visual art at Cambridge, Aberystwyth and Goldsmiths and has an MA in printmaking from Wimbledon College of Art. She has always painted outdoors. Her work has grown in strength and confidence following a trip to Antarctica in 2005 followed by a Research Bursary from DVA/ExLab which supported her study of the history and craft of making and consolidating pigments. She has been a senior tutor at West Dean College since 1995, has published books about her projects and contributed to other books both as an illustrator and practitioner. She has exhibited throughout the UK and in London. Earth and Rock, her first show at Sladers Yard, welcomes her to living in West Dorset.
